Great read. Those of us in the fitness comnunity may already know most of these myths and the real truth about them, but a refresher is always good. Especially for motivating. Personally, I have some ‘hibernation weight’ I need to get rid of, so the temptation to work out everyday for 2 hours is very tempting. I know what works best for the body and I need to stick with that. So, articles like this not only reiterates what I know but motivates me to stick with it. http://abcnews.go.com/m/story?id=21579137

Five Food Finds about Spicy Food
- People who are regality eat spicy food are considered pyro-gourmaniacs.
- People have been using hot and spicy seasonings in their food for more than 6,000 years according to archaeologists.
- Christopher Columbus discovered chili peppers when he ‘discovered’ the Americas in 1493.
- Capsaicin, the chemical in peppers that makes them hot, isn’t found in any other plant and is potent enough that people can identify it even when the concentration is as little as one part per million.
- The best way to ease the burn of flaming hot peppers or overly-spicy mustard of horseradish is with cold milk or yogurt. Avoid water as it won’t mix with the oil and will only result in moving the heat to other parts of your mouth.

This pictures is too funny! Especially since it’s gym season. I try to never shame anyone that starts the new year off with joining a gym. Even a few months worth of exercises can jump start a healthy lifestyle. But be smart! Ask questions!
Great read and info!
Okay so my drink of choice is 1st water and then wine. I need to cut the wine down to once a week but other wise I’m pretty happy with what I drink most of the time. But I know a lot of people out there that drink a lot of diet soda. 😦 I’m sure if you google it you could find something on the internet that its good for you in some crazy out there way. But I think there is a lot more information out there stating that it is not good for you and how bad artificial sweeteners are for you. (But that is another post all in its self. lol My husband and I do not and will never use them or give them to our son) But anyways. Here is a pretty good article I found about diet soda.

For years, the wider fitness industry has warned people of the dangers of Crossfit, and now an injury nobody would wish on anyone has occurred.
Kevin Ogar, a Crossfit trainer in Englewood, Colorado, was performing a 3 Rep Max Snatch when he lost control of the bar overhead.
He was unable to get out of way in time, resulting in the bar damaging his T11 and T12 vertebrae, and severing his spinal cord.
Kevin currently has no feeling below his waist.
Weightlifting is dangerous. Whether it is Power lifting, Bodybuilding or Olympic lifting is irrelevant. There have been life-changing injuries in all of these sports, as well as deaths.

How does Crossfit differ from all other types of lifting?
Kevin was competing in a competition that consisted of nine…
